Freelands Artist Programme

Encased in scent: Rachal Bradley’s solo show Interlocutor explores the negative ion generator at Gasworks, Jan 24 – Mar 18

24 January 2018

Rachal Bradley presents solo exhibition Interlocutor at London’s Gasworks opening January 24 and running to March 18.

The show is a new commission produced by Gasworks which grew out of the Nottingham-based artists’ time at the Freelands Artist Programme residency (Jul 3- Sep 18, 2017) and developed with Kunstlerhaus Stuttgart. The space will be transformed into a “negative ion generator” where Bradley will “encase the gallery floor in natural resin infused with a bespoke herbal tonic.”

Other works include interviews with the Gasworks staff and members, an oversized washing machine made into a projection booth with resin where a new video will be shown as well as a number of “purpose-engineered, vacuum-formed units” along the exterior walls of the gallery. 

There will be two accompanying events: an ointment preparation workshops led by Bradley’s sister on February 3 and a public reading of a new piece of writing by the artist on March 3.
